Tretter will sign with the Browns on Thursday barring any setbacks, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Tretter will consequently become the Browns' new center. Cleveland is also expected to sign Joel Bitonio to a sizable contract extension, so patching up the offensive line appears to be a top priority for the Browns entering 2017.
Tretter (knee), an unrestricted free agent, is expected to pass any medical evaluations in the free agency process, The Stevens Point Journal reports.
Tretter missed the final nine games of the Packers' season, including the playoffs, after sustaining "significant MCL damage" in Week 8. He consequently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in late January but fortunately, doctors didn't find any cartilage or structural damage in the afflicted area. Thus, he isn't expected to have any health-related concerns hinder his ability to land a contract when unrestricted free agency opens Thursday afternoon.
Tretter (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
Tretter underwent surgery earlier in the week to repair his right knee issue, so he had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. The Packers were able to promote wide receiver Max McCaffrey from the practice squad to their active roster Saturday as well.
Tretter (knee) underwent surgery Tuesday and will not be available Sunday against the Falcons, Wes Hodkiewicz of the team's official site reports.
Tretter will miss his second straight contest due to a right knee sprain. The reserve lineman wasn't expected to see any action on offense, but with an injury to T.J. Lang (foot), Tretter's absence becomes a bit more concerning.
Tretter (knee) was ruled out of Sunday's playoff game in Dallas.
Tretter didn't play a snap on offense or special teams last week despite being active. Thus, he technically still hasn't played since spraining his MCL in late October.
